The crime happened Jan. 29 at about 10 p.m., according to the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division.

The victim, 69, told police he was at his bank’s ATM in the 11000 block of South Sam Houston Parkway when someone approached from behind and stood uncomfortably close to him. The victim turned around and asked the man what he was doing, and the robber said he was there to take his money.
